No Man's Sky has been described as many things; infinite, epic, bold. But PlayStation LifeStyle posits whether the space oddity can become a game-changer.
Hard to say until we get our hands on it, but it potentially could be. If it does well I can see some hybrid games popping up before too long, with locations built in the traditional way and scripted events but separated by procedurally generated space or land.
This game is Destiny hype all over
Except it has 1% of the budget, of the marketing budget and of the people involved. On the other side, probably 100000x the content, passion and creativity, instead of 3 big repetitive and empty levels miscalled "planets".
lol bubble for that man, so funny and so true.
Destiny is great
After playing it A LOT, I'd say it's good. Greed stopped it from being great.
I have to agree that it tends to be looking that way. Definitely excited for the game, but I'm tempering my expectations until we see more of the game.
If you want to see more of the game, search for it on twitch. I myself am having fun with it, very fluid movements, I want to explore the whole map.
Bravo sir finally someone else gets it. nms is Destiny hype all over again. Hyping procedural generation as a selling point because the game play is as generic and boring as can be. We have had procedural generated games since Sega Genesis days so no big deal. So much hype for a game that does nothing, fly around finding stuff with very little interaction with people. Imagine grand theft auto with no people or cops and this is no man's sky. StarCitizen is the game that is epic and the game changer but since it's a Pc Exclusive consolers get brainwashed into hating it.
it could go either way. I won't get my hopes up. I'd rather be surprised that it's great than disappointed because it didn't live up to hype.
Day 1. I hope for a physical copy. I wonder, is this still considered a 'indie' game? If so, this is the most hyped indie game (pre launch) ever! 'indie' AAA?
For me, this is incredible. All I want to do is explore infinite worlds. That's what they're giving me with No Man's Sky.
Same here, an all the details I have seen on the worlds make me really want to explore and see whats on those planets.I really am wondering what I haven't seen yet.
So, aside from exploring forever. Which is fun... What is the point of this game? Space battles, or something?
this is my biggest concern. im scared its going to be a never ending minecraft without the detailed mining..doesnt sound too exciting. i also feel like theyre not telling us a lot to surprise us when it does come out. im cautiously excited for this release.
Can't exploring be enough of a point by itself?
I want to say yes, but in reality, no. Don't get me wrong, I love exploration. I've spent 30 or more hours in SotC just wandering around exploring the map, but even SotC had lizards to hunt and fruit to gather.

Wow, thanks for the info! Have a bubble for the trouble.
Mark my words. 1/27/2015. I've seen Graphics go from praised(Gears of War) to condemned(Killzone 2), Linear go from go from a nonfactor(gears of war) to condemned(Uncharted). Free to Play(DC Universe, Planetside, Warframe)become condemned. The next word to be condemned Procedurally Generated(No Mans Sky, BloodBorne), watch, Mark my words 1/27/2015.
Take off and landing simulator 2015
I am excited to see this game in action but I am skeptical on how much fun it's actually going to be.
This is the new Elite, but hype may go too far and ruin another game....
Blasphemy NMS garbage is not the new Elite and obviously you know nothing going about either. NMS fly around exploring with no interaction with ai or humans Elite Dangerous fly around exploring crafting Mining making money forging aliences building stuff and of course battles from ship on ship to all out galactic warfare.
Elite has all of that, but no landing on planets. o_O How exciting.... Do you not see the problem here? No Man's Sky offers something that Elite doesn't and you're hating on it for that very thing? And eventually, No Man's Sky will receive "traditional multiplayer modes", just like Elite will probably allow you to land on planets, but have nowhere near the amount of them or the sheer diversity. Just like No Man's Sky will probably not have the same amount of depth in terms of collecting, trading and building alliances as Elite will. You just need to face that each game has its own strengths and perks and specific kind of audience that will enjoy it. Both can co-exist nicely, but you seem not to want that. NMS is a 1970s sci-fi exploration wet dream. Elite is a serious, space-cadet sci-fi wet dream.
I wasted $60 on the new Elite Dangerous. Infinite isn't as fun as you think. With out something guiding you forward at least gently, it gets boring FAST. This is a 10 man, carebear version of Elite with no multilayer to speak of. It's going to be gamechangingly BAD. It could set back space games 10 years (not that they haven't almost completely died). Telekinetic - procedurally generated has been a disaster for a long time. No game has ever done it well, except maybe In very simple, small spaces like a rogue like from the 70s. Seriously some one name me a good game with memorable randomly generated levels. And even worse, this game is going to stick a mouses head, on a giraffes neck, on a hippos body and say it has 10 billion unique life forms. No plot, no npcs to interact with, a 0.001% chance of ever running into another player. This game is a prettier version of Starbound - except you can't build anything. Found a list for you! http://www.giantbomb.com/ra... All incredibly simple or incredibly bad games! Sorry games need plots, and games need HUMANS to carefully build unique experiences for us. Computers cant do it except for very limited side scrollers, top down rogue likes or old school Might & Magic dungeon crawlers.
It never ends.... Infinite. ---- "I wasted $60 on the new Elite Dangerous" You bought an unfinished game. Congrats. ---- "This is a 10 man, carebear version of Elite with no multilayer to speak of." The game has non-traditional multiplayer, and will also eventually receive traditional multiplayer post-launch. Stop lying: http://www.gamespot.com/art... ----- "It's going to be gamechangingly BAD. It could set back space games 10 years (not that they haven't almost completely died)." I'll let Patrick Stewart take this one: http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photo... You were wrong about the quality of The Order: 1886. You have been utterly wrong about Bloodborne in your stealth trolling. You will be wrong about Hello Games' next great game too, because none of your comments on any of the PS4 exclusives you have been bashing for months have been in any way constructive. The sole reason you hate on these games, grasp at straws and hypocritically hype up Xbone exclusives instead, is to downplay greatness. Sorry, but it's well and truly here. See you on the other side of the baseless hate.
Did someone pay for all these articles about No Man's Sky? They almost always seem to mention game changer or something else.
